This is the last full day of our Gems of the Danube river cruise aboard the AmaBella. Here's our blog from day 6.
We continue into Bulgaria today. Our previous blog, describing the passage through the Iron Gates Gorge is here. Today we are in Vidin. AmaWaterways describes Vidin as "an extremely off the beaten path destination" and sure enough, that's what it is.
Today we start our river cruise from Budapest, Hungary to Bucharest, Romania aboard AmaWaterways' AmaBella. Follow along as we traverse the Balkans and brush up on communism, the Ottomans, eastern orthodox Christianity and some modern wars as well.
We've already planned where we'll be New Year's day 2024! Sounds crazy but if you want to be on a river cruise in Europe, you have to think ahead. And that's what we've done. So if you want to travel with a travel agent and celebrate New Year's in a unique way, check out the trip we have planned.
